There was no mention of follow-up. He said he had some good results with this treatment.

I have had CPRS for 2 1/2 years with pain every day. This occured after knee replacement. I was in such pain the first year that I could not eat. I lived on Boost milkshakes and Oxycodone and my weight dropped to 100 lbs. I had spinal blocks which did not help at all. I went to neurologist at Vanderbilt and the only thing he offered was a higher dosage of Cymbalta which I did not want to do. I currently take 150 mg of Lyrica, 60 mg of Cymbalta and Oxycodone as needed. I am scheduled to start Ketamine infusions (200 mg each day for 2 weeks) next Monday. I am excited about this as I know it will help, I just don’t know if it will last months, years, or lifetime.

I still have pain every day. I currently take 150mg of Lyrica twice a day and 60mg of Cymalta once a day. I take Ibuprofen often and take Oxcodone on really bad days. I am scheduled to start Ketamine infusions the first of April. I will have infustions 5 days the first week and 5 days the following week. I recently had elective surgery and requested they put Ketamine in IV. After this surgery, I went four days with no pain so I believe this treatment could really help me. These four days are the only time I have been pain free in 2 1/2 years. After these infusions, I will not know how long it will last, hopefully the rest of my life.

I am getting along ok. I hurt but nerve pain is not too bad.

I currently take 150 mg of Lyrica twice a day. I also take 60 mg of Cymbalta a day. The Cymbalta has made a world of difference. I still hurt but the Cymbalta takes away the pain and I hardly ever have to take a pain pill. I went to Vanderbilt to see a neurologist and the only thing he offered me was a higher dose of Cymbalta. He told me I could take up to 120 mg a day but said every time you increase the dosage, you increase the chance of side effects and one of the side effects was loss of memory. So, at this time, I am afraid to increase the dosage. I will consider this only if it becomes unbearable.

After knee replacement, I developed RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy). I have had severe pain in my legs for a year and half. Does anyone have suggestion as to how I may control this disease
